So, I’m not going to lie, I’ve had other things on my mind during the past couple of months that mean I have rather neglected this little blog of mine. This is a shame as Elliot has been fast developing his speech even further, and is also taking early steps in reading too – all of this will have to be blogged about soon or I shall forget (stupid Mummy brain)
Though I now have another reason to be speedily depleting my brain cells once again- we are pregnant!
Yep, Elliot’s little brother or sister will make an appearance sometime in December. Handily coinciding with Elliot’s third birthday – now that’s a present he’s not going to forget in a hurry!
At this stage I think it will be born by elective cesarean sometime around the 7th – and my midwife and consultant are all on board so we’ll just need to wait and see.
Needless to say we are all now very excited. Elliot keeps asking to “see baby, mummy?” which is rather cute.
We’ve had a rocky road to get here though, hence my nervousness about posting on here. At 14 weeks now and having been able to find the heartbeat with a Doppler at home, and having had a wonderful 12 week scan, I’m hoping we can relax and enjoy the second trimester for a while.
I have been writing a series of secret posts, addressed to the baby, which go some way to explaining our nervousness, which if I’m brave enough I’ll post on here in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, apologies for the lack of posts and hopefully now I can stay up a bit later than 8pm, I’ll be able to write a bit more often. I’ll leave you with a picture of surely the cutest big brother to be (I’m not biased at all!)
